Jack Russel

Why is my 9 year old Jack Russell "Mugs" getting freckles all over him? He's white and he had a few but I'm just wondering if it is really freckles or some other malady? He doesn't act weird or sick. What's going on?

Help me!

Dear Donna,
Thank you for emailing me back and letting me know how Mugs was doing.
Usually this spot thing happens a lot earlier for the JRT's, but I was just wondering, did you not take Mugs outside as much when he was younger? Just a thought, but I think he is just fine. Again, if they do change as in a sore or infection, then I would highly recommend that you take him to the VET!

Have a wonderful day in Sunny Florida and let me know if I can ever help you again. I love the JRT's and their mixes so much. My precious Ginger (2 1/2) has brought me such joy and laughter beyond belief.
GOD Bless you and MUGS,
Stef, Belgium, JRT/mix Lover from Texas!

I thank you for your comment, but today when I looked closer, I think it's his hair becoming spotted! It is totally weird. There is nothing that looks sore at all. As I said, he's completely normal otherwise. There is no warmness and it's all over except his belly. Every day there seems to be more spots. I just don't know, but as I said there are no sores, just light brown freckle looking spots on his fur, I don't think it's on his skin.

Nine years old huh? Well, you do live in Florida so sunspots even for an older JRT would not be that unusual.

I tell ya, if they don't look sore or infected, I would say that they are age spots. If they do become infected or look sore, I would take that darling to the VET.

Let me know if anything changes,

Stef, Belgium, JRT LOVER from Texas!
